Observing Menstrual hygiene Day
Menstrual Hygiene is a very important matter to know for every single person. It is a tough period for women where they go through lots of body changes and hormonal changes. These days they need to be properly clean, eat healthy and nutritious food and must use sanitary pads. But in most of the village areas of Arunachal Pradesh, the women are forced to live in an unhygienic atmosphere which may cause many diseases. From BMM NGO, we celebrate this day by spreading the awareness of menstrual hygiene by distributing free sanitary pads among poor women.
Food and Fruit Processing Training
Arunachal Pradesh is full of nutritious vegetables and fruits which has made the state a land of nutrition. Here the fruit processing units are active and they engage a huge number of workers from the surrounding areas. From our NGO, we are providing training to the local youth and women to make them financially confident.
Piggery and Poultry Training
Developing the Animal Husbandry sector, the organization conducted Animal Health Check-up camps in different places. This animal husbandry program is mainly a source of income for rural women. In this program, the women are given pigs and chickens for their economic development and self-dependency. Through rearing these animals, the families of those women will get a strong economic upliftment.
Bank Linkage Training
Small business and self-funding works are getting popular among the women of rural areas; we support them. BMM NGO has successfully promoted some women’s self-help with the support of the local bank. We continuously support women in the organization to achieve their aims and enhance the skills and capacity to utilize the locally available natural resources through livelihood activities through the support of a local bank. We provide training on skill development from time to time as per the need of the small business support.
Women Empowerment and Children health
The organization runs welfare programs for both mother and child on health and SHG. The organization has been maintaining a door-to-door service for the health care of women and children of the locality. We often organized several group discussions with mothers for better maintenance of the little family and how to take proper health care of the prenatal and postnatal mothers. The medicines were distributed. These medicines are mainly received from the District Health Centre Unit and free samples of the local doctors. We also are aware of mothers’ mental health and advise them to take care of their kids.
Celebrating International Women’s Day
8th March, the International Women Empowerment Day was celebrated in the financial year 2019-20 and workshops related to women’s rights & their constitutional rights and new innovative policies of union and state government were awarded to them.
Training on Health Education
We arrange training on health education to provide knowledge on basic health services and facilities to poor people. A meeting was held to inform people about the deadly effects of HIV/AIDS on men and women. Health Camps are regularly organized with the help of primary health centers. It has been observed that the health camps are very effective and fruitful for increasing health-seeking behavior among beneficiaries.
Besides horticulture, BMM NGO has started a mushroom-keeping process to develop the economic status of rural people. A mushroom or toadstool is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground, on soil, or its food source. There are over 50,000 species of mushrooms, including molds and yeasts. Various types are hallucinogenic,1 to 2 % of species are poisonous, and others are used for their medicinal properties. Although most mushrooms are edible, few species are consumed, as most species can be tough, woody, or gelatinous, give off an unpleasant smell, or taste bad. Only about 20 varieties are truly flavorful. Mushrooms are high in protein and add extreme nutrition to food; the cultivation of mushrooms is also very good for income purposes.
